Glaetzer Wallace Shiraz Grenache 2019


I can’t begin to tell you how many times this modestly priced over achiever has come up in big tastings I conduct each year. It’s a really consistent value for money red from the Barossa that always seems to deliver a little more than the price. This is stacked with bright red fruits that emerge from the Grenache component, while it is underpinned by deeper savoury plum flavours of the shiraz. A rich dark chocolate almost biscuit-like base and a touch of spice provide palate substance. The oak mix of largely used French and American is gently layered into the pool of fruit adding further to an already engaging combination. Excellent wine.
